I wrote an article for Minneapolis City Pages' Gimme Noise called "Music Is at the Core of My Ideal Community". I'm pretty proud of it. Read it.
Also, Nate Logsdon (who helps run Maximum Ames Records and also plays trumpet on The Fate of a Good Man) just released an incredible new solo album called Bathtub Against the Sea, so to celebrate I've posted a cover of his song "Family Circle" which is on his band Mumford's album Immediate Family. Listen to it.
